Barack Obama poses for a photo with J Balvin after speaking at a get-out-the-vote rally at the Cox Pavilion as he campaigns for Nevada Democratic candidates on Oct. 22, 2018 in Las Vegas.

Barack Obama continue to prove that he's a fan of J Balvin at a rally in support of candidate Senate Jacky Rosen and other Nevada Democrats in Las Vegas, Nev., on Monday night (Oct. 22).

The former president asked the audience: “Who doesn’t love J Balvin and reggaeton? I was backstage, fortunately, there was no camera going when I was jamming.” (Remember when “Mi Gente” was at the top of his favorite songs of 2017 playlist?)

Obama’s rally, which included performances by the Colombian urban artist, ‘90s hip-hop duo Salt-N-Pepa, and a speech by American Ferrera, appealed to young people and Latinos, encouraging them to vote in November.

Obama also said that not voting would be “profoundly dangerous to this country, to our democracy," according to The Washington Post.
